I imagine nothing will be spinning as the need for moving parts in media is obsolete. Downloads, streaming on demand, larger RAM storage for cheap. Using lasers and high RPM motors seems a bit much to deliver audio data in comparison with digital non linear formats.

CD's days are numbered... Did you know the CD's size was based on the measurements of cassette tape housings to share the "compact" label of "compact cassette" compared to the 8 track cassette format?
